newsitem {2010-October-08}  {Version 3.7.3} {
  SQLite [version 3.7.3] is a regularly scheduled bi-monthly maintenance
  release of SQLite.  Upgrading from [version 3.7.2] is optional.
  Upgrading from all other releases is recommended.

  This release adds two new interfaces (really just variations on existing
  interfaces).  The [sqlite3_create_function_v2()] interface adds a 
  destructor for the application-data pointer.  The new 
  [sqlite3_soft_heap_limit64()] interface allows the soft heap limit to
  be set to a value greater than 2<sup>31</sup>. 

  The [RTREE] extension has been enhanced with the ability to have an
  [custom r-tree queries | application-defined query region].  This might
  be used, for example, to locate all objects within 
  the field of view of a camera.

  The 3.7.3 release also includes some performance enhancements, including
  query planner improvements, documentation updates,
  and fixes to some very obscure bugs.
